Poof, No More Soft Money



( Sung to the tune of Puff the Magic Dragon )


                               Bill the President Clinton lived in D.C. 
                                   and had a lawyer lady wife 
                                  and a daughter named Chelsea. 

                                     He took a lot of money 
                                    from folks from lands afar. 
                                  Republicans said that was bad, 
                                 Which made Bill laugh quite hard. 

                                   Poof, no more Soft money, 
                                    Campaign Reform is here. 
                                   Now Politicians tell the truth 
                                and you don't get drunk from beer. 

                                  Republicans who couldn't buy 
                                       a Nineties President, 
                                now tell their children on Bob Dole 
                                   Their inheritance was spent. 

                                    And little Newtie Gingrich 
                                      taught a college class, 
                                 He misused funds he got tax free 
                                    and his buddies let it pass. 

                                   Poof, no more Soft Money. 
                                    Campaign Reform is here. 
                                   Now Politicians tell the truth 
                                and you don't get drunk from beer. 

                                 Those costly T.V. commercials, 
                                    campaign buttons and hats, 
                                    are just so damn expensive 
                                       say the Democrats. 

                                       For us to get elected 
                                     We have to beg for cash 
                                  at a White House slumber party 
                                   or a ten grand coffee Klatch. 

                                    Poof, no more soft money, 
                                    Campaign Reform is here. 
                                   Now politicians tell the truth 
                                and you don't get drunk from beer. 

                                     Bipartisans their Credo, 
                                   Together now they stand. 
                            Would you like to buy the Brooklyn Bridge 
                                  and some Florida swampland?
